Home > Cases > Kathleen Slattery v Basildon Borough Council [2014] EWCA Civ 30

A traveller’s appeal against a decision that a house was suitable as temporary accommodation for her was dismissed. The court was bound to follow Sheridan v Basildon BC (formerly Basildon DC) [2012] EWCA Civ 335 which held that an arguable failure by the local authority to exercise its powers under the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act 1960 s.24 did not disable it from relying on the absence of any available caravan pitches.
